Wreck of the Titan, or Futility
The Titan: the latest and most awesome industrial feat of modern luxury ocean liner, holding two thousand passengers, is set to sail the Northern Lane Route between New York and England. This alleged unsinkable and indestructible vessel is set to beat the record for this voyage in less than 5 days! In her crew: John Rowland; a drunk, and washed-out naval seaman. On the passenger list: Myra Selfridge, and her little daughter. A former lover who wants nothing to do with Rowland, due to his drinking. After a collision with an Iceberg and all hands deemed lost, Rowland finds himself fighting for life on an ice floe...and in his charge: keeping alive Myra's little daughter! (This novella was written 14 years before the Titanic set sail) - Summary by Joe DeNoia
